Within this chapter, technology-enhanced personalized learning is highlighted as a model for supporting all students in an inclusionary setting. Content of the chapter is focused on the birth, development, growth, and the eventual demise of a student-centered-model in one turn-around school district. The chapter focuses on the interplay of teacher methods and expectations; the impact of real-time progress data by students and teachers, and the points of contact where innovation collided with the expectations of traditional education practice. The authors also discuss various political elements that emerged as a result of the turnaround process. Finally, elements of the roles of teachers, technology, data, self-regulated learning, and competency-based education are discussed relative to establishing a student-centered learning environment.
